HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
Well I think you're trying to do something (...by going away from your local network) that neither Kodi or MySql is intended to do, in the manner you're trying to do it, and you might have better results using Emby media server and integrating it with the Emby addon into Kodi. MySql REPLACES UPNP. Most people using it (MySql) have their media files stored either on a NAS device or a PC that acts as a server. Like in my situation, I have a NAS serving the media. I have MYSQL setup on an old laptop that is ON 24/7 and I have 5 devices accessing MySQl and using it to keep the Kodi library. I can add movies to the NAS and add them to the library from any one of the PCs or Android devices I have via Kodi Library Update. I don't think it was really meant to be used off site. Seems like you're trying to do it all backwards. Putting the media on that PC you have connected to the TV and sharing them from there to the rest of the devices is the way it usually gets done.

As far as keeping the watched status and resume points, do you have these lines of code in your advancedsettings.xml file:

Code:
<videolibrary>
<importwatchedstate>true</importwatchedstate>
<importresumepoint>true</importresumepoint>
</videolibrary>
